GetHuman: Can you tell the rest of us a bit more from what happened on 11/20/17?
gethuman-itsmyst: Few will agree that taking my money in a clear error of an online transfer is not the right thing to do, Bank of America. On June **, **** I sent an online wire from my account to my wife's account (-****) at B of A for $*,***. The next day June **, **** my wife contacted me and let me know that the funds were not in her account. I contacted my bank, Union Bank and was told the wire had been sent. I checked the account number again and it was not my wife's account number, it was the account number of a company I had worked for in the past Next Generation AE, Inc. That same day June **, **** I asked my bank Union Bank to help me return the wire, because it had gone to the wrong account. They said you have to wait * business days to file a claim against the funds at Bank of America (that the account is most likely close and B of A would return the funds). I waited and filed the claim (claim no. *******) * business days later. I also began trying to get in touch with Next Generation AE, Inc., President and B of A account signer Willy Bernard. On Aug *, **** I spoke with him by phone and he said he had called B of A. That day Aug *, **** he told B of A that the money was put in his account by error and they should return the funds to the rightful owner (Thomas Mitchell at Union Bank who sent the funds in error). I understood, from the conversion with him that his account had been overdrawn. That is no reason to take money from a low income veteran with a family to support. $*,*** is two weeks pay. I'm asking that B of A consider not taking my money to pay their debts or Willy Bernard's debts. Few will agree that taking my money in a clear error of a online transfer is not the right thing to do.
